I felt like one of Santa's elves today. I just finished this saber for my buddies 10 year old son. It's going to be his Christmas present. His Name happens to be Luke. Yes,my freind named him after Luke Skywalker. All pvc construction except for the bunny ears, those are thin aluminium, blue Lux III led, 5 degree lens, copper end cap heat sink, 2.2 ohm 5 watt resistor, standard switch, 1 of each red,black & aluminium TCSS screws. Trans white thick walled blade w/out cello. It's powered by 4 AAA batteries.
profezzorn: hey ARKM, did you ever write a that tutorial on the toner transfer method?

ARKM: *waves hand* "I'm not the slacker you're looking for"

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?

ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.

profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
